Apologies and small adventures

Hi lovelies, I am so sorry its been so long since I posted. First my camera broke (devastating) and now my computer is practically dead (exasperating). As a disclaimer, I took these pictures on Sunday while reconnecting with my point n' shoot, and my computer is so slow that it took me twoish days to edit them in my free time.
My wonderfully summery and delicious Sunday:
This clock is very much broken, but the radio works. I woke up at 1pm after staying out all night having fun with my friends and listened to NPR while I cooked up some food.
I had fried eggs, crackers with olives, cold steak, and grapes and a massive cup of iced green tea. This article in The New York Times Magazine was fantastic (and my friends IRL know I used to hate M.I.A.) and the pictures were STUNNING. I also just stumbled on this article in which she freaks out at an NY Times reporter for portraying her in a "less-than-flattering" light. I dug out my too-big aviators to read with.I fell asleep in the grass and it was perfectly calm when I woke up. A light breeze, a silent phone, and my hand still holding the magazine.This is my new friend, she came over to meet me while I was asleep, and when she saw my eyes open decided to introduce herself by walking onto my hand.I smelled flower somewhere in my backyard, when I went to investigate I was stopped by my shadow saying hello.I met a gnome coming out of the vegetable garden, he hadn't seen the flowers I was looking for, but he did tell me that the garlic is almost ready to be picked.When I found them, they were the most perfect white peonies with a hint of pink in the center. If smell could be conveyed through the computer, your screen would smell like heaven. My quiet afternoon couldn't last forever. The phone started ringing, there were plans and friends to be made once the sun went down. Its summer though, and every day holds promise to be more beautiful than the one before.
